Ed Lucie was born in Jamaica, Queens, NY. After seeing the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show he immediately began guitar lessons but quickly discovered and switched to the electric bass guitar. He was mostly self taught until entering Berklee College of Music where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Music. He began doing road gigs but returned to Boston to earn a Master’s Degree in Jazz Studies from New England Conservatory. He was fortunate to study with Mirslov Vitous and Dave Holland. He soon relocated to LA where he served as chairman of the Bass Dep’t at the LA Music Academy. He is currently living in Boston where he is a professor at Berklee College of Music.
Ed is dedicated to the bass guitar (he does not double on upright) and seeing its acceptance into the jazz world. He has performed, recorded, travelled, and appeared with a wide variety of artists and situations including Buddy Rich, Stevie Wonder, Boston Pops, Warren Haynes and Gov’t Mule, Glen Yarbrough, Pat Boone, Peter Bernstein, and TV sitcoms.
Casey Schuerell, renowned drummer states “Ed Lucie is an outstanding musician. His bass playing reflects his deep passion for music. Accomplished in a wide range of styles, with a firm foundation in jazz, he is an excellent reader and a terrific improviser. When working with Ed, he contributes musically in unselfish ways, intuitively understanding the role he must play in order to make each musical experience successful.”
